I am hosting a Jack and Jill dinner party with 35 guests. I am serving shrimp, chicken and pork kabobs with 3 different kinds of rice dish. Do you think I need a salad if I have peppers, onions and tomatoes on the kabobs? Also, I have aharvest table with cheeses and crackers. Is four different butlered hor doevres enough?
Yes, I'd have a green salad. Onions and peppers can be "reactionary" veggies for some people - either from strong flavor or what they can do to your insides.
And with the cheese and crackers (and maybe red grapes and dried apricots sprinkled around the cheeses?), 4 passed hors d'oeurves is good, IMO.
